Deepest Sympathy to all of the family. I met Edna years ago , then cared for her as she got sick. I loved her from the moment we met and will never forget the many memories we shared. One of the sweetest , kindnest and beautiful person I enjoyed knowing. She will watch over all of us, that was her nature. RIP my dear friend.😢

I have fond memories of Edna when she was a resident at the Carriage House at The Elms in Westerly. A family member of mine was a resident there at the same time. Edna was very friendly and helpful. We three had some fun moments over the course of a few years! My condolences to her family and especially to her daughter, Diane.
